Mike Pumphrey has been playing music for what seems like an awfully long time. Starting at the piano, he taught himself guitar, and has continued to attempt to learn whatever instruments people have thrown into his lap. (He has since sworn off instruments that won’t fit on his lap.) After playing in some high school and college bands, he recorded a solo album in his basement. He then played the coffeehouses of his native Philadelphia for a few years, playing for hundreds of people (cumulatively). After moving to New York, he was involved in a number of bands of wildly different genres, ranging from improvisational jamband to ambient rock. These days, he plays in the indie rock band Butterthief, and is responsible for bass, backing vocals, and exaggeration. Mike’s level of popularity is sustained by his diverse musical styles, ensuring at everyone will enjoy at most a few of his songs.

His homepage currently is www.mikepumphrey.com and he is as shocked as you that it wasn't already registered.
